My first discovery of 2013 is Archie McPhee's—a store for the kid in all of us.
We went up to Seattle last week for a couple of days with our friends Norm and Paula. Paula took us to Archie McPhee's. I had heard about it, but never been there. Toys and novelties are what McPhee's is all about. Goofy stuff.
How gross do these items sound?
If you don't plan to be in Seattle anytime soon, they have a website.http://www.mcphee.com/shop/
Today I set out to discover what would happen if I cut up a less-than-successful quilt and then put it back together in a new way, which was something Elizabeth Barton suggested when I posted my latest work the other day. Remember this boring number?
I grabbed my rotary cutter and attacked it with glee. Then used narrow black strips to put it back together.
I would need to trim it. Maybe like this.
Or maybe a more drastic trim.
I'm not sure this produced anything very good, but I do think it is more interesting than it was!
More cutting and resewing? What do you think?
